WHO DO YOU COMPETE AGAINST?

We are a Recreation level tackle football team.

In 2023 we will be playing teams in Bluffton, Hardeeville, Rincon, & Bloomingdale.

REGISTRATION?

We utilize in person registration, though we can mail or email you the paperwork in advance.  This allows us to better meet and talk with parents and players which improves communication.   

Our email is lowcolightning@gmail.com

RAIN POLICY?

We do practice in light to medium rain.   Games will continue to be played in those conditions as well.

If it's hard rain, heavy thunder, or lightning we will cancel.  We try to make that decision about 30 minutes prior to practice to make the most accurate judgement, as weather here changes very quickly.
